Olympics Party Ideas and Games

  • Sports Theme Party Decorations 

    These fun and easy ideas will help shape your party and set the mood!

  • Anything sports themed
  • Old sports uniforms
  • Banners with the Olympic rings emblem
  • Pennants
  • Posters of sports heroes
  • Hang banners of flags from other countries
  • Include the Rocky theme song and the Olympic theme song on your music track

  • Favorite Sports Party Games

  • While your are waiting for everyone to arrive...Have large inflatable balls, sports balls and Hula Hoops that kids can play with
  • Team Spirit - Divide into teams, and have each team come up with a name, mascot and team cheer
  • Hula Hoop Contest
  • Obstacle Course
  • High Jump - have players jump over an obstacle
  • Scooter Pull Relay - have players lie on the stomachs on a flat cart and pull themselves to a finish line
  • Egg and Spoon Relay - have players test their balance by racing to a finish line while balancing an egg on a spoon!
  • Balancing Race - have players race to a finish line with a book balanced on their heads. If it falls off, they must return to the starting line
  • Hand Push - Easy to set up and play anywhere. Have two players stand facing each other with their toes touching and their palms together at shoulder height. On "go", have each play push the other's hands until one of them has to take a step back or lose their balance. The player who forces his opponent backward is the winner. Have everyone team up to play, and then have the winners play each other, etc. until you get to an ultimate champion.
  • Arm Lock Wrestle - You've seen this one. Have players sit on the floor, back to back with their legs spread and arms locked at the elbows. On "go", each player tries to pull the other over to his side so that his arm or shoulder touches the floor.
  • Sports Charades - Play a regular game of charades, but instead have everyone do a sports motion, such as swinging a bat, shooting a basketball, etc.
  • Target Games - Play some fun target games such as trying to throw a rubber band over a broom handle or dowel, or trying to toss playing cards into a bucket.
  • Glow in the Dark Olympics Party - This would be a great idea for older kids at a sleepover!
  • Relays and Races - See our page of Relays and Races for more ideas!
  • Movies - For a sleepover Olympics party, watch the Cool Runnings DVD.
